I am back home, had a sleep and had time to digest the shit sandwich which was served up to me by Bath City yesterday. The 7-1 defeat still hurts and feels like the entire season has been ruined. How long I will feel like this for, I don’t know.

To be honest, the rout has only just settled in. It felt unreal and like a dream. I was half expecting to wake up this morning, to realise I had awoken from a nightmare. Sadly, yesterday’s game was very much real.

After the match, as well as sadness and confusion, I also felt angry. Following Sunderland players refunding their fans, for an 8-0 defeat a week earlier, I thought the Bath City players should do the same, or at least offer an apology.

12 hours or so later, I feel a bit different. Granted the performance was atrocious and unforgivable. I am not a professional football player. I never have been and never will be. I don’t know how they feel or what goes on in their head. However, I don’t believe they’re lazy or go out to lose games. I also believe that, besides suffering a serious injury, getting beat by a colossal score line is the worst thing that can happen to a football player. The defeat is the fault of the players – they will be suffering and deeply upset. They have already suffered a public humiliation.

What can the players do to repay the fans? While I don’t agree with them refunding the supporters or individually coming out and saying sorry; they must put all their efforts into the upcoming league games. They owe the fans a huge performance and a big win next Saturday – and the Saturday after that, and the Saturday after that.

Time will tell if the players do repay the fans on the pitch. Claire’s parents are sponsoring the game next Saturday, so we will all be wined and dined in a hospitality package. Hopefully the only thing I will be eating is roast dinner and ice cream, and not another turd baguette.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
